(Pocket-lint) - Samsung has, as predicted, launched the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 - a 10-inch version of the company's newly announce Note phablet launched in Europe in September last year.

“GALAXY Note 10.1 takes productivity on a Note to a whole new level. With a larger, fully utilizable screen and superior performance, it combines the intuitiveness of handwriting with all the versatility of digital content to let users be more productive across all of life’s demanding tasks—whether working, learning, or simply creating their own stories,” said JK Shin, President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. “With GALAXY Note 10.1 we are demonstrating Samsung’s commitment to extend the mobile category and are working with key partners like Adobe to provide extraordinary experiences for users that enable them to be more productive, express themselves creatively and add a touch of fulfillment to their lives.”

The new bigger Note runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and features a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and HSPA+ connectivity.

It will come in three sizes - 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB and have a 7000 mHa battery which should give it plenty of juice to power the screen at the pen. 

The Samsung Galaxy Note was launched in September 2011 and features a 5-inch screen trying to bridge the gap between phones and tablets. This device, however, is a pure tablet.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 was first suggested on an invitation to developers that mentioned the device. We originally thought that this might have been a typo, but it now appears that we'll be getting all sketchy with a larger device. 

It's not the only tablet Samsung is launching at the trade show. It has also announced the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 - a 10.1-inch tablet, but without the stylus.
